Abstract : A theoretical study of motion of a fin-stabilized rocket with slow spin is presented. Graphs of characteristic functions for effects on yaw and angular deviation due to various disturbing factors (i itial cross-spin, fin misalignment, etc.) were obtained on the GEDA analog computer, using various launch velocities. A FEW TYPICAL GRAPHS RESULTING FROM THESE COMPUTATIONS ARE INCLUDED IN THIS REPORT. Computations of unit effects of disturbing factors for two designs are included. (Author)
